Projective Responses to Racially Identifiable Speech by Racially Prejudiced and Non-Prejudiced Individuals.
Surlin, Stuart H.
This projective exploratory study in responses by racially prejudiced and non-prejudiced individuals to samples of black speech, which was designed as a means of uncovering trends, resulted in some conclusions "made with some degree of assurance": (1) The Southern students participating in the study were significantly more prejudiced than the Northern students; (2) Subjects tended to respond to black identifiable voices in the same negative manner as is customarily found in personal contact or discussion of blacks; (3) Subjects holding relatively similar racial attitudes relative to the norms of their social environment reacted in a relatively similar manner to the same racial stimulus; (4) Bogardus Social Distance ratings tended to directly relate to the projective responses of each group, e.g., the less negative the prejudice ratings, the less negative the projective responses tended to be, and vice versa; (5) More research should be done in this area in order to strengthen these tentative conclusions.
